2018 Ford F-150 EPA 10-Speed MPG Review & Changes – Any lump in fuel economy, even though it is just one mile per gallon, is a big package for trucks. And, as we experienced figured, the new 10-speed automatic transmission equipped to the 2018 Ford F-150‘s twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 offers much better EPA quotes than the 2016 model. And however, it is not the most efficient powertrain you could get in an F-series.
A standard-payload, two-wheel-drive F-150 in this setup is now rated at 18 mpg city and 25 mpg highway, compared with 17/24 mpg with the exact same engine and the prior six-speed automatic transmission. Four-wheel-drive versions get 17/23 mpg, also up by 1 mpg for each cycle.
For the F-series, however, the 3.5-liter EcoBoost/10-speed combination is not the reigning EPA champion. That will go to the two-wheel-drive 2.7-liter turbocharged V-6, at 19/25 mpg. That model, in addition to all other F-150s that do not have the twin-turbo V-6, continues to include the six-speed automatic. Even the 3.5-liter non-turbo V-6 is provided with a status of 18/24 mpg, or maybe 1 mpg decrease on the highway than the model with the 10-speed. Relocate up to the 5.-liter V-8, however, and EPA rankings decline significantly, to 15/22 mpg.
All other EPA reviews for the 2018 F-150, in accordance to Ford, are unaffected. Considering the 2017 Toyota Sienna minivan (19/27 mpg) hardly becomes much better mileage than a half-ton pickup, it is very clear that pickup fuel efficiency came a long way. But in our assessments, turbocharged engines in large vehicles are not actually a lot more efficient than larger normally aspirated engines under heavy plenty, so it is very best to opt for based how you use the vehicle as opposed to on mileage statistics on your own.
